Lured by its exotic gems, the space trader Solar Queen lands on the little-known planet of Sargol, only to find the ruthless Inter-Solar Company there ahead of them. Adapting quickly to the culture of Sargol's feline inhabitants, the crew of the Queen beat out their rivals and successfully make a deal with the natives. But soon after takeoff, the Queen's crew is stricken with a plague, and they are now banned from landing on any inhabited planet. Will the Queen's crew save themselves, or be condemned to drift forever through space?

Another good story by Andre Norton
And you gotta love when the little guys win. Summary gives you the general idea of the story. It kept me listening till the end, very nicely done.

Plague Ship is a fun bit of light science fiction, although the science part is not really up to scratch, and doesn't stand a close inspection. However, the story is enjoyable enough to see through that, and enjoy the story anyhow.
Mark Nelson is a superb reader, to the degree that I have started seeking out what he has read!
